‘Boy Is Seriously Fragile’ ‘He May Be Made Of Glass’ Chelsea Fans Not Happy After Latest Injury Update

Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic underwent a scan to determine the seriousness of a hamstring injury he picked up at the weekend.

The American international was withdrawn from the starting eleven against Burnley after pulling up during the warmup but, at the time, manager Frank Lampard played down the severity of the problem, describing it as a minor issue.

However, the need for a scan would suggest that Pulisic’s injury may keep him out for longer than anticipated. Supporters on Twitter are becoming increasingly concerned about the 22-year-old’s injury record:

Young players, particularly wingers, can go through periods where they have successive hamstring problems. It is absolutely vital that Pulisic’s latest injury is handled correctly so there will be no further recurrences.

The scan could be a precaution so the club’s fitness coaches can better handle his recovery but we shall have to wait and see if the news is better or worse than first feared.
